My dream came true.... on October 18th, 2010 I visited a place I've always been fascinated with.. THE LIZZIE BORDEN HOUSE! Oh yes, peeps!!! Yours truly not only visited the place, but stayed the night there... in the Morse room where Abby Borden (the step mom) was hacked to death in!! I can't even begin to tell you how cool it was to be in that house with so much history attached to it. I've been fascinated with that place since I can remember, probably as early as elementary school. Yup, I've been a sick and twisted girl all this time! I mean think about it... the whole case is a mystery! Lizzy was never convicted of any murder, but everyone knew she did it. She was caught in a ton of lies while on stand, her stories didn't match up, she ruined evidence pertaining to the case which people knew about... it goes on and on. Soon after the trial, the towns people banished her. For those of you who don't know much about the Borden case, you can read all about it here: Lizzie Borden Wiki
The reason why I've always been fascinated by the case was because it was so gruesome, especially for that time, the late 1800's.... PLUS the criminal was a female and that was unheard of back in those days. Abby Borden was changing the sheets in the guest room, Morse room, when someone came up behind her and bashed her in the head with a hatchet. She was found face down between the bed and dresser, blood and brains everywhere. The father, Andrew Borden, was laying on the couch in the living room when he was bludgeoned in the head with a hatchet, god knows how many times. When you look at crime scene photos, they are unbelievably disturbing! His skull is barley recognizable, same with Abby. This is what you call a hateful crime. The person who killed them hated them immensely. Some say Lizzie hated her step mom because she was inheriting money from Andrew and Lizzie felt it wasn't fair, so to solve that problem, kill her. Also, some say Lizzie didn't intend on killing her father..... that he was at the wrong place, at the wrong time. We'll never know the whole story. Its one of Americas top unsolved murder mysteries out there. How can all this not be interesting!!??
Getting back to the bed and breakfast part of this, I loved it! Great service, great everything! These people sure know how to make guests feel comfortable and entertained, and the breakfast is KILLER! The whole house is pretty much a replicated from the time Lizzie lived there, from the furniture, paintings, carpets, rugs, etc.. The owner did so much to it to make the house authentic. Joe and I got there a little late and made it in time for the night tour. It started around 8 and ended around 10. We had so much fun! Also, it was nice cause only one other couple, besides Joe and I, were staying there. The house was pretty much empty, so yeah, it was creepy! The tour was so informative. I learned things that made me really think and stuff I never knew.... so cool! Ghost wise, Joe and I didn't have any experiences, but I guess there is a lot of activity on the 3rd floor, basement, and Andrew's room.... just like Andrew, gotta be there, right place at the right time. Honestly, not sure how I'd react if something happened to me, hehe! All in all a GREAT experience and I can't wait to come back here next year!!
Entrance to the Borden's Cemetery in Fall River, MA.
her blood splattered dress in here, destroying evidence.
him sleep on the side where Abbys body was found, hehe!
a must for all you history fans!
moved there.. so many other Borden's on that street,
they just named it that.
This is Maplecroft.. the house Lizzie bought not much later after
the trial. This house is 2x her previous one. All the money she
inherited, she mostly put into this one.

We're well into filming for the upcoming action flick, Opposite Blood! This weekend I filmed more scenes with my character, Lin Chow, at an actual gun range! Not only did I get to shoot some awesome scenes, when we were done, I got to shoot an actual Glock for the very first time in my life! Let me tell you, it was insane! I wasn't nervous at all when we filmed, but when I shot that gun, it was a whole other story. Although I missed the target horribly, It was a great experience to say the least, haha. I'm going to leave you all with some pictures from the shoot and 2 trailers.... enjoy!!!
Thats the Glock I shot!
My good friend Marshall from www.zombieammo.com brought me this to shoot at!
Ready, set, FILM!

As some of you know, Joe and I love to travel and see the sites.... we also love history. While we visited a site out in Wisconsin, we decided to visit Ed Gein's hometown and grave, since we were in the area... Call us weird, but its really interesting stuff. Its funny, Joes into serial killers, I'm into the paranormal, so it works out both ways!
For those of you who don't know Ed Gein, let me give you a quick rundown.....
From Wikipedia: Edward Theodore "Ed" Gein (pronounced /ˈɡiːn/; August 27, 1906 – July 26, 1984) was an American murderer and grave robber. His crimes, which he committed around his hometown of Plainfield, Wisconsin, garnered widespread notoriety after authorities discovered Gein had exhumed corpses from local graveyards and fashioned trophies and keepsakes from their bones and skin.
Some very famous films were based off this man... Silence of the Lambs, Psycho, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre to name a few...
I'm going to leave you with some photo's we took while we were there...
His gravestone is missing cause people stole it long ago and we stumbled across this....
He's buried next to his mother whom he had many issues with.
One of the ladies he murdered is buried a few yards from him.
The empty spot is where he's buried.
Joe found it right away... strange..
Here's where the house and barn once stood...
The property.. who know's if bones still exist on the property...
Ahhh, its great to be back in Texas! Wow, what a wonderful convention! Texas Frightmare Weekend was amazing! Joe and I had a blast! This was my first convention in Texas and Joes second one... By far, from what I heard, this particular one was the best! So many amazing guests, it was crazy! Not only did I get to attend this, I got to meet some of my fav's too!! Thank you to all my fans and friends that came out! Ahhh, it was good!! Now I'm gonna leave you with some highlights.... Until next year, Texas!!! :D
